A fire in the electrical room at 565 New Park Ave. Tuesday afternoon resulted in the temporary closing of several businesses, West Hartford Fire Department Battalion Chief William Kall said.

According to Kall, fire damage was contained to the electrical room, however the three businesses that are housed in the building were filled with smoke and had to be vented.

Businesses housed at 565 New Park Ave. include the restaurant Hot Basil, Royal Kitchen & Bath, and The Best Appliances.

Eversource was able to isolate and shut down the damaged electrical system at The Best Appliances and restore power to the other two businesses, allowing them to reopen, Kall said. Power remains shut off at The Best Appliances, he said.

The fire marshal is investigating.
